Big Commerce?
22 Mar 2011
Has anyone used Big Commerce? I have not, but they say they integrate with ebay. Am looking for a ebay and e-commerce store solution. Strongly considering this over inkFrog/highwire due to the poor functionality of the cart, and a lot of bad seo stuff.

Why isn't this listed here?

My quick Q&A with BigCommerce yesterday via email:

---------------------------------------------------------------

I understang that I can sell bigcommerce inventory on Ebay.

1.Can I have a single inventory for skuX which changes with a sale on either channel?

2. If I sell 1 of skuX via Bigcommerce, will the inventory setting within ebay be updated to prevent me overselling ?

This thread seems to suggest syncing is not working perfectly: forum.bigcommerce.com/f8/ebay-feature--272/?highlight=ebay

---------------------------------------------------------------

In regards to your inquiries:

1.Can I have a single inventory for skuX which changes with a sale on either channel?

No, this is not possible.

2. If I sell 1 of skuX via Bigcommerce, will the inventory setting within ebay be updated to prevent me overselling ?

No. The inventory is updated in BigCommerce when purchase has been finalized in Ebay. However, there is not an update in Ebay when there is a purchase in BigCommerce.

The ebay integration feature is more of an enhancement/support tool for our clients. It is not intended to replace ebay listers.
Seller on ebay.co.uk and amazon uk. Looking for cart and multichannel solution.

Yes, I too found their eBay integration pretty useless. I was really impressed with their software (I tried it) and all the easy videos but was let down on the integration. We are in the middle of a Volusion implementation. So far, so good. Easy to use, pretty good training videos and information. The big plus is the API they offer. If you are a programmer (hire a consultant if you are not), you can use their API to synch inventory across platforms. The only other option is to use Channel Advisor which I found lacking and very expensive for what you get.
